Listing Description

The Black Abbey (so-called because of the colour of the priests’ habits) was part of the Dominican Priory. In addition to the church, there were many other buildings where the priests and lay brothers lived and worked. They also owned some land and had a mill on the River Breagagh. The Abbey lay outside the walls of the city, and was connected to the rest of Kilkenny by a gate. For more information visit
